A 2020 report found that nearly 690 million people—or 8.9 percent of the global population—are hungry, up by nearly 60 million in five years.

Die speenkalfprys is tans 36% hoër as ’n jaar gelede. Die voorspelling van ’n bykans 30% groter mielieoes sal mieliepryse laat daal en dit is sekerlik goeie nuus vir speenkalfprodusente, het mnr. Louis Wessels, uittredende voorsitter van die Wes-Kaapse Rooivleisprodusente-organisasie (RPO), in sy voorsittersrede op ’n virtuele jaarvergadering gesê.

Die prys van koffiebone het ‘n vier jaar hoogtepunt behaal. ‘n Landbou-ontleder by Commerzbank, Michaela Helbing-Kuhl, gee Brasilië se voortdurende droë weer die skuld. Sy sê die droogte sal na verwagting tot Augustus voortduur, wat nie ‘n goeie teken is vir volgende jaar se oes nie.

Wetenskaplikes het vir die eerste keer daarin geslaag om varke, bokke en beeste te skep wat as lewensvatbare surrogaat manlike diere kan optree. Dit is manlike diere wat sperm produseer en slegs die genetiese eienskappe van skenkerdiere dra.
